The English post-punk band White Lies have released another song I Don’t Want To Go To Mars from their new upcoming album. It is titled As I Try Not To Fall Apart, which was announced in September.
The band bassist Charles Cave said about the new track;
I Don’t Want To Go To Mars has all the distorted bombast of White Lies best anthems neatly packed into a short story.The song follows a character seemingly being herded off Earth to live out a sterile and mundane existence on a newly colonised Mars. Fundamentally the song questions the speed at which we are developing the world(s) we inhabit, and what cost it takes on our well being.
